Default Aphil belly dancing on YouTube

I was performing in a holiday stage show last weekend, and someone videotaped! Imagine my surprise this morning when I find myself on YouTube!

I am dancing improv (my piece was not planned/choreographed ahead of time-I am making it up as I go along!) to a Greek pop music piece. At the very end of the piece, I am playing finger cymbals during the fast ending portion, but you have to turn your speakers up pretty good to hear them.

Anyhow...this is what I do!

That was beautiful, Aphil! I have a laptop, so couldn't really hear the finger cymbals... sadness... I'll watch again from home tonight to see if I get them there!

Wish I could see you perform in person. Your costume is beautiful and your dancing so graceful.

Thank you everyone! I have gotten asked quite often here over the years if I had any video footage of myself dancing-I finally found some posted, so I thought that I would share!

I loved it! Our local parks and rec offer belly dancing for exercise. I've been tempted to take the class. I know you've discussed it here many times. After seeing your costume, I feel I can do it. I don't have to be half clothed like I've seen belly dancers at the local Morrocan restaurant.

That's just great, I'm so glad you posted. At first it looked like you didn't have normal bones in your arms!

That was gorgeous. You are incredibly graceful and with all that red hair cascading everywhere, contrasting with the jewel tone of your costume, you absolutely shone up there.
